Houston firm earns national recognition from The Best Lawyers in America
HOUSTON – The Houston-based complex commercial litigation and intellectual property firm Ahmad, Zavitsanos, Anaipakos, Alavi & Mensing P.C. (or AZA) is being recognized by U.S. News & World Report and The Best Lawyers in America as one of the country’s “Best Law Firms.”
The firm earned a Metropolitan Tier 1 ranking among Houston commercial litigation firms in the 2013 listing of the nation’s leading law firms.
To compile the “Best Law Firms” listing, researchers with U.S. News and Best Lawyers surveyed thousands of attorneys and law firm clients across the U.S. The results of the survey appear in the November 2012 Best Law Firms publication. The full listing also is available online at http://bestlawfirms.usnews.com/.
“It’s an honor to be named among the best, but not a surprise. Our team of complex commercial litigators is a formidable one in court and all along the pathway to the courthouse,” says AZA founding partner John Zavitsanos.
Five litigators from AZA have been recognized among the nation’s top lawyers in the 2013 edition of The Best Lawyers in America, including Mr. Zavitsanos and fellow firm attorneys Joe Ahmad, Demetrios Anaipakos, Amir Alavi and Sean Gorman. All five were selected based on their work for clients in commercial litigation matters.
AZA helped client Versata Software Inc. win one of the top 10 verdicts in the nation in 2011. AZA also helped clients win three of the top verdicts in Texas last year, including two courtroom victories for plaintiffs and one for a defense client that included a large award of attorneys’ fees.
The firm also was selected to The BTI Client Service A-Team 2012, a ranking of law firms based on interviews with corporate counsel from across the U.S. Nationwide, only a select number of law firms that serve Fortune 1000 companies were chosen based on superior client relationships.
Mr. Ahmad and Mr. Zavitsanos repeatedly have been named among the Top 100 Lawyers in Texas in the annual Texas Super Lawyers list. Overall, six AZA attorneys are included in the Texas Super Lawyers listing, including three lawyers who have been listed all 10 years the list has been published. Four AZA attorneys have been named to the Texas Rising Stars list of the state’s top young lawyers.
